      The worst of the muck is now off.    Just need to convince a neighbour to let me have a go of his steam cleaning rig to finish fhe job off!  This thread may go a bit quiet for a while now, as my freshly painted scooter bodywork will be arriving soon. (Been waiting for it since February)  🙂

      Hi all.    I am looking for someone to rebuild my gearbox. It whines in every gear and is gradually getting louder. Sync is fine, changes heat smooth so I am guessing it’s bearings? I also have a B&B clutch that can go on at the same time.  I live in Devizes Wilts, so I’m hoping for a Polo specialist within 50ish miles? Any recommendations?    cheers Darren.

      "not just the lever" that diagnosis does not fill me with confidence on their competence with carbs.   There is so little to go wrong on a Weber, and what might block can be fixed with compressed air and carb cleaner like engine breather oil in idle jet.   Even medium to big faults are not ruinous for a Weber. Worn needle valve, vac leaks at hoses or base, crud got past ancient fuel filter or torn/missing air filter, split o-ring on mixture screw, fuel pressure too low (or too high), throttle shaft air leak can be fixed with bigger shaft but that's mega miles. Water in fuel well ethanol crust could be scraped away, maybe ultrasonic clean.   Make sure you or the garage get a new rubber base mount for the Pierburg.

      Had a proper look and probe of that loom and it made sense - both relay coils were wired parallel, honestly nothing wrong with the thing. So i shortened the wires i'd made and ran it straight off the alternator (closer to the lights at least, right?). Disconnected the dimming resistor too (found the plug, aye)   It works as it should. Honestly I think this idle weirdness is just a red herring mixed with my over-sensitivity for running issues at the moment.   I measured the voltage drop over the old wiring at 1.85v and over the new loom at 0.97v. Did it in the day so can't tell the difference in terms of light but that should be a fair bit brighter eh. Got 13.6-odd volts at the bulbs now, same as at the battery when the alternator is running.

      don't see why not. dellorto.co.uk sell a Pierburg repair kit for 2e.   So long as pulldown unit, 2nd stage vac unit and autochoke working and heating tubes still in place for the autochoke... part channel heater heating, idle cut-off solenoid works..   Flipping complex the Pierburg. But nice when it works right.
